A Little Scare And Then Good News!

While everyone this week started out bad then ended on a good note. Things was been slow all week and I been fighting of sickness again. On Thursday, I had a little scare when they let three of the other temps go on my shift at work. I hated to see two of them go because they were good work friends. I will miss seeing them around work. I hope they find other work soon.

Thursday night, I got my first good night sleep all weeks. Friday morning, I did usual Friday stuff of talking with my Love, Jo Anne, getting my paycheck and going a little shopping for house supplies. That all went smoothly and even had a chance to clean my car. Then I got to work. Everything was going as normal until after dinner break when my supervisor came up to me and handed me an application for a permanent job. Now I will be filling out the paperwork this weekend. I hope to get the permanent job and things pick up at work. I have been praying for another friend at work that was not offered a permanent job. needless to say she was a little upset since she been there longer then the other temps. I hope see sticks in there. I sure the next opening will be hers.

I hope that I can being you guys more good news soon about work and the process to get Jo Anne here. May you all have I blessed week.

The Heart of Worship

“Give yourself to God, as those who have been brought from death to life, and surrender your whole being to Him to be used for righteous purposes.” Romans 6:13

The heart of worship is surrender; this is what Rick Warren says on his book, The Purpose Driven Life. As people, sometimes it is hard for us to surrender because it implies losing or a defeat and no one wants to be a loser.

True worship brings God pleasure and it will happen when you give yourself completely to God. Ninety five percent is not enough, God wants our whole being, the 100% of our life and not only a part of it. We can't say that we surrender to God if we are still living in fear, pride and confusion. These are the three barriers that block our total surrender to God. To totally surrender to God we must trust Him, admit our limitations and allow Him to control our lives.

For the past week, i have been into a lot of stress and it come to a point that I am almost living with fear and worry. But God speak to me through His message at the church that inspires me and encourage me to continue my journey and surrender my life fully to Him. Life without Christ is nothing. Let us all come back to the heart of worship, and it is all about Jesus.

The Bright Side Of Allergies

This week my allergies have acted up. They have not brought me to a complete stop but at time they make it hard to do things (like breathe). This was one of the bad years were I got allergies in both the spring and the fall. Since my freshman year of college, when I had a bad cold, I had a problem with allergies. Since then I have got they in the spring or the fall but not in both most years.

I have sent the last couple days thinking about the positive side of allergies. yes there is a positive side. My allergies are caused by pollen from plants. I see that a couple days of discomfort as worth the beauty of the flowers and trees I see a round me. I also can get my pay back by eating the plants and using them for other helpful applications.

I guess one of these days, I will check to see want I react to to cause my allergies. For now, my allergies are normally not that bad to bother checking. Besides, most of the time it is only a couple days I need to deal with them.

Okay, I Am More Confused Now Then When I Started!

The title of this post sums up the last two weeks since my last post. I have been working on trying to get Jo Anne here the United States. The more I learn about the process the more confused I get about the process. I am glad that God has blessed me with a good job that is as safe as a job can be now days. Now I am working on hiring a lawyer to help me with the process or at least explain it to me better. Last weekend, I read the section of State Department's website on visas. Needless to say, I felt more confused after reading the information there then I did before reading the website. I was hoping to above having to hire a lawyer but I just can not make since of parts of the process.

Right now in my life, finding a way to be with my Love, Jo Anne, here is my biggest worry. I often worry if I doing the the thing. No, I am sure that we will be together. I am talking about which way to go so we will be together. I have found comfort in the Book of Philippians, which my Sunday School Class as been studying for the pass few weeks and remembering all the things God was done before for me. I still worry, but when I realize I am worrying about it too much I turn it over to God.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV)

All my life, God has blessed me many times over. Many times, these blessing can at what seemed to be the last possible minute. Looking back, I can even see a blessing in the bad things that have happen in my life. This past week, I have been focusing more on seeing the blessing in everything and having a heart of Thanksgiving.

For example, last Monday, I took my car in for inspection and my car failed. I am blessed to have a car. I have some money to make the repairs that need to be done. I have 60 days to do them. That is just a few of the blessing that I can up with out of this situation.

I would like to to challenge you to look for blessings in everything in your life. It has helped me a great deal.
